Music Creates New Brain Connections

I just learned about this video and wanted to share it.  On February 27th, PBS News Hour did a segment on music therapy called “The Healing Power of Music.”  My Alma mater (University of the Pacific) and classmates were interviewed and are showcased in the video.  Learn more about the effects of music therapy, what is considered music therapy, and examples of who may benefit from music therapy.

The PBS segment mentions Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ story of how music therapy helped her recovery.  Working with a music therapist, she found her voice through singing.  Below is one part of the ABC News segment with Gabrielle Giffords and her music therapist.
